What you will learn:
A slight tweak in the way you ask someone a question can be the difference between receiving a blank stare and unlocking a crucial insight. Asking powerful questions is a high-leverage way to deepen relationships, improve conversations, and supercharge meetings. But shockingly, in our colleges and careers, we’re never taught how to ask better questions.
In this Elective, we’ll dive headfirst into the fascinating world of questions, when you’ll learn how to structure questions in a way that helps your audience feel more open, engaged, and empowered. These skills will not only help you lead better meetings, 1-on-1s, and client calls, but also interact more meaningfully with friends, family members, and strangers.
